Washington Summit

(Capitol Hill Visits Held May 17)

Thank you to our over 110 members for
traveling to Washington and
 holding over 100 meetings
with your lawmakers during the 2023 Washington Summit.

Your advocacy meetings are making a big mark in Congress for NUCA and our industry. We need to see you again in DC next spring during the 2024 election season!

The 2023 NUCA Washington Summit

As NUCA members, we must ensure that legislators understand the important role that our industry plays in keeping the country healthy, clean, and prosperous.

We want you to share your stories to persuade Congress that they must act to improve our nation’s underground infrastructure. Only you can deliver your personal expertise to your lawmaker's offices--they need to hear about your experiences. Those personal stories persuade lawmakers, especially when you are their constituent.

Washington Summit 2023 Highlights (Subject to Change):

  • Capitol Hill Visits (May 17) - Discuss What Matters to You with Your Senators and Representatives
  • Federal Issues - Presentations from Washington Insiders and Experts. 
  • Discuss Indepth Our Industry's Top Issues: Water/Wastewater Infrastructure Implementation, Workforce Development, Supply Issues, Private Activity Bond Reform, and Damage Prevention
  • Legislative Briefing - An In-Depth Look at the Key NUCA Issues Before Congress With Congressional Speakers
  • More Advocacy Activities To Be Announced!


"Infrastructure has been a hot topic in Congress, but we cannot leave it up to our legislators—WE are the experts! Our active involvement in the process will help us push the best legislation forward with adequate funding. This is no small task. Join us this fall in Washington, D.C., to ensure our collective voice is heard."

--Tom Butler, Petticoat-Schmitt.,
NUCA Government Relations Committee Chair
